I'm still only on NM, but am mostly using disentegrate with the dmg familair and enchant weapon. Pop diamond skin when needed, and archon when I need to maintain my disentegrate for longer for bosses/champs.
When it comes to Inferno if you get hit once or twice by one mob or once by a few mobs hitting you at the same time, and your reflexes for diamond skin aren't up to par, you die. So you constantly have to be moving and it all becomes about avoidance. Disintegrate was great until Inferno then it is now a back burner spell, probably used for when pvp comes out.
I personally use a dps build with venom hydra and tap the source arcane orb. The hydra hits things while you are running around and with it being Venom it leaves pools of poison on your stationary enemies that burns them for damage over time. My arcane orbs, mixed with the passive skill that allows your arcane damage to slow attackers, usually crits for 50-80k at 30k dps. Thats the method I use. Archon doesn't increase your armor so it goes the route of Disintegrate.
